help please on timing for sirloin tip pot roast

rtms | Jan 12, 2013 09:44 PM

It's my turn to cook dinner - for 14 foodies. I have a 4kg sirloin tip that I rubbed down 12 hours ago. I live 1 hour away from the venue and I want a flavourful, tender pot roast.

Most recipes call for 2 - 2 1/2 hours for 4 lbs pot roast. Mine is twice that size. So I'm figuring 3-3 1/2 hours at 350F.

I could cook it at home then bring the unsliced roast, reheat and finish the smashed potatoes. How long would it take to reheat the roast?

Or, would it be better to arrive ~4 hours before service and roast it onsite without knowing how long it will take to cook.

Thanks for any advice.
